(Iraq Now News)-

Iraqi PM Haidar al-Abadi has canceled a visit to Iran that was scheduled for next Wednesday after Tehran refused the premier‘s compliance with US sanctions against the Mullah‘s regime. An Iraqi official who requested anonymity said "Abadi will visit Ankara only without Tehran, because of the overcrowding of his agenda and the lack of integration of the preparation for his visit to Iran".

"The Iranians are not satisfied with Abadi‘s recent statements about US sanctions against Tehran," the official said.On Saturday, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasimi said Tehran knew nothing about Abadi‘s visit.

Abadi said he would abide by sanctions imposed by President Donald Trump against Iran.
